Greg Young’s review published on Letterboxd:
Glad I saw it in theaters because I don’t think I would enjoy it nearly as much at home. The thing I do appreciate about these movies is the way they expand the scope of what’s scary further than just the monsters, but to the everyday challenges that become apart of the new world these characters live in. I’m glad this doesn’t try to be anything it isn’t (that being a family centered horror drama), and the thematic elements are pretty solid, even if feeling a bit heavy handed at points. The opening sequence was wonderfully crafted, and I’m proud of myself for noticing the Children of Men homage and then John Krasinski confirmed during the live q and a afterward. This is a short movie that still feels like it could cut some fat, but overall, it’s a pretty exciting horror film that continues the same energy of its predecessor.
